thank you all for your great advice.
I am up for the great challenge. I am excited, passionate, worried, and worried. But the past few days I have been working longer hours and am enjoying it.
I needed something much more challenging. I am a risk taker and have high expectations from myself.
Yes, I am aware that most businesses fail. Even if I dont reach my goal and run a successful business, I hope at minimum I can enjoy the ride and look at it as a great experience.
A few days past and I don't regret it yet! And I hope I dont regret this decision in the future either even if my business plan fails.
All my friends so far thought it was a stupid decision cause most of them graduated and are still looking for a job. I will only have to prove them wrong to show my decision wasnt as stupid as they think!
And believe me, I am worried but feel that Ive done the right thing and so far so good. Although its not even been a week, Im very optimistic and energetic to move FW.
Almost 4 years of traveling non-stop EVERY week for my boss, I was due for change and a normal life style. I think I have other priorities and need to focus on other aspects of life. Luckily, traveling on business I didnt have to pay for food, blackberry, Rental Cars, Hotels and .... and saved enough to survive. I hope I dont blow up all my savings though, which I worked hard to earn and sacrificed a normal life style for years to deserve.
p.s.> As crazy as it sounds, I already do kinda miss the company (which sponsored my MBA degree and all my travels) and miss my coworkers including my boss! Its always what you dont have I guess! hehe... anyway back to work :)
